Built in the early 1300s where the 19 meter high Buddha statue towers over the many worshippers.As a non-active Buddhist believer, it is easy to believe that you are doing wrong, but the whole thing is very relaxed

A busy working Wat with many many worshippers and various offerings. The central gold Buddha was phenomenal and dotted round the temple were prayer rooms with paintings. As you enter there are lots of Buddhas where worshippers add gold leaf as part of their offering.

This is one of the famous temple for Thai people and historic site of Thailand previous history. The temple located at the riverbank and provided walkway for visitors to walk along the riverside for fish feeding enjoy scenery in both side and see the way of life of the local people. Inside the main Chaple you will see the big Buddha sitting statue which in Thai we call “Pangmarnlavichai and for foreigner know as “The attitude of subduing of Mara”. For the meaning of this Buddha attitude is that you will pass the problems or situation in life by winning from your heart and mind. As a story telling about this Buddha attitude is when Buddha want to give up when he did not get enlightenment because he was passing hard and simple but he can not find the way to the right way of practice he sit with this attitude to fight from inside that if he just give up he lift up the right hand hand and move while he suffer from difficult deeds or he remain patient and realize the difficult deeds that occur. People that worship this Buddha attitude to remind themselves that everything will pass if you are not give up to your goal. you will see the Buddha image had the age hundred years surrounding inside. Aside you can put money in box that temple provide to get the Offering to the monk that Buddhism will do when visit temple as merit to them and the love one.

This 19m tall seated Buddha image is considered to be one of the most beautiful in the country... According to legend tears shed from the eyes of the image just before the destruction of Ayutthaya by the Burmese in 1767

Located at the confluence of rivers at the south corner of old Ayutthaya city, this is a major temple complex with large covered areas to accommodate big crowds of pilgrims. Huge amounts of parking, much of it under shade.
The main Buddha image is imposing and grand, reflecting Ayutthaya’s past imperial splendor.

Also located on the temple premises at the river front is the Chinese shrine to เจ้าแม่สร้อยดอกหมาก (Lady of the Betel Flower Necklace), a Ming princess who arrived from China to marry an Ayutthaya king, but due to a misunderstanding she refused to leave her ship until she passed away from heartbreak.

One of the most important temple of the Ayutthaya Era. The temple and the giant sitting Buddha statue, amazingly, escape the damaged of wars. Devotees come to receive blessings from Luangpo To, the huge Buddha statue, who indiscriminately greet everyone with a kind half smile.

For the sheer bright scale of the golden Buddha, I would have this Wat on my list to see in Ayutthaya. We came as part of our riverboat temple tour.

I had visited this beautiful temple dedicated to Lord Buddha during my full day sightseeing trip to Ayuthaya. This is an active temple and no entrance fee is required here. I was mesmerized to see the giant idol of Lord Buddha in sitting posture. The giant Buddha is surrounded by many small Buddha idols in the walkway surrounding the alter. Many devotees were there offering prayers and also chanting along with the monks in the temple premises.
